Happy St. Patrick’s Day and Happy First Day of Spring!
We bet you don’t know much about how either of these spring celebrations came about. Well, here is some interesting information about the two significant days coming up this next week.
Did You Know?: Saint Patrick’s Day, or the Feast of Saint Patrick, is a cultural and religious celebration held on March 17th, the traditional death date of Saint Patrick (c. AD 385–461), who is regarded as the foremost patron saint of Ireland. Saint Patrick’s Day was made an official Christian feast day in the early 17th century and is observed by the Catholic Church, the Anglican Communion, the Eastern Orthodox Church and the Lutheran Church. The day commemorates Saint Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland.
Did You ALSO Know?: At the Spring equinox (March 21st), days are approximately 12 hours long with day length increasing as the season progresses. Spring refers to the season, and also to ideas of rebirth, rejuvenation, renewal, resurrection and regrowth. Swedish meteorologists define the beginning of Spring as the first occasion on which the average daytime temperature exceeds zero degrees Celsius for seven consecutive days, thus the date varies with latitude and elevation. In Persian culture the first day of spring is the first day of the first month (called Farvardin) which begins on March 20th.
We encourage you to enjoy this season, but don’t forget about the need to take care of the projects around the house. Of course, we mean the power washing needs (house, roof, gutters, driveways, etc…) that will need to be done soon after Spring officially comes in. However, our techs will give you another reason to celebrate when you let them make your home sparkle after a good exterior cleaning.
